489 Answer to Part 2 Practice Questions Answer: Question 2.1-FSL Industries 1. Since FSL requires the use of \$9 million, it will have to borrow \$10 million (\$9 million / (1-10%)). This will result in 10% of the loan principle (\$1 million) being used to satisfy the compensating balance. Annual interest would be 5% of the total loan of \$10 million or \$500,000. 2. a. The semi-annual interest cost of the term loan would be \$9million*(7%/2)=\$315,000. The annual interest cost would then be \$315,000*2=\$630,000. b. Advantages of this loan over the short term loan include: The loan would be outstanding for 10 years and would not have to be renegotiated each year. Since the need for these funds is quite long due to the need to carry the spare parts inventory, this is an advantage The interest rate is fixed for 10 years, eliminating interest rate risk which is inherent in the short term loan Disadvantages of such a loan include: FSL would not be able to take advantage of falling interest rates in the future.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
